Pauline Curnier Jardin

An Evening With Pauline Curnier Jardin


06/07/2016 –
– 30/11

1646 presented a special evening with the work of the French artist Pauline Curnier-Jardin.

The transgressive, camp, and idiosyncratic character-driven work of Curnier Jardin takes on a diversity of forms ranging from paintings, performances, musical collaborations, installations and films. In her work the artist often incorporates historical or mythological material into her own bizar aesthetics. With the instruments of the theater, she breathes new life into anthropological objects, discoveries, and images. She reinterprets such objects as altruistic protagonists in her self-created, peculiar adventures. She is especially interested in the female figure in mythology, history, folklore, and cinema. She deconstructs stereotypical representations of women as hallow, witch, mother, or mystic. Through a multimedia approach, her work seeks a unique representational logic, in order to locate a separation between reality and fiction, rationality and emotion, man and woman, friend and enemy, human and objects, the sacred and the profane.
